Warrior Gyms is a fitness centre located in Mohali ,Punjab. The client is a professional body builder and wanted his gym to have a distinct identity while bringing a necessary facility like a gym to a broader audience.The gym is located on the second floor of two adjacent lots. The local byelaws did not permit removing the partition between these spaces. The layout was thus done within this constraint providing cardio workout in one hall and muscle work out in the other. The machines have been segregated according to various muscle groups for ease of use. The 3D art installation was done predominantly on the ceiling and the wall so as to provide an encumbrance free exercise space below. An identical inverted wall paneling is done on the opposite wall albeit in 2d so as not to interfere with the equipment yet completing the design. The branding was done using bold colours to symbolize passion, ruggedness and to create a dynamic space which inspires people to persevere to achieve their fitness goals. The design solution utilized conventional materials such as particle boards and medium density fibre boards to create the triangulations for the wall paneling. The construction details for each triangulation were created digitally for the understanding of the carpenter before being implemented on site.
The rubber matt flooring in grey provides a surface that is durable, easy to maintain and acts as a canvas for the feature wall. No gym is complete without the use of mirrors as people like to monitor their progress while exercising. Mirror paneling was done on the same wall which has the tessellated paneling to serve this purpose and its reflection adds another dimension to the 3d paneling.Use of red lacquered glass is done on the reception wall to resonate the brand identity.
